Bike too heavy, won't wheelie

I'm sure he's running a different sprocket, but still...

I have the manual version, and the traction control must be off for the bike to wheelie. While I am not a fan of wheelies for the **** of it, being able to raise the front wheel over obstacles offroad is a necessity. Just put it in first, blip and lift....

Idk whats on the front but that back sprocket looks pretty stock. I can wheelie mine no problem. I'm a wuss with it though, I can only pull it up, I won't hold it for a length of time. I can only pull up in first too...
